Manchester United to Meet With Entourage of Eduardo Camavinga

Eduardo Camavinga

Manchester United are keen to add Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga to their ranks, as reported by RMC journalist Mohamed Bouhafsi.

Camavinga is highly regarded in European football as one of the top emerging talents and it’s no surprise to see the Red Devils linked with the 18-year-old.

Manchester United to Make Move for Eduardo Camavinga

Manchester United Looking to Convince Eduardo Camavinga

Eduardo Camavinga’s entourage will meet with Manchester United next week as the Premier League side would like to convince him to make the move.

United officially expressed their interest in Camavinga last month.

Summer Window Yet to Officially Get Going

Of course, Manchester United’s pursuit of Jadon Sancho has been well reported, however, there has been no official business done yet at Old Trafford.

Fans, who have suffered some frustrating transfer windows over the years, are understandably pessimistic about what the window will look like for them come the end of the summer.

If reports are to be believed though, the club are on board for a healthy summer.

Former academy goalkeeper Tom Heaton is reportedly set for a return, where he will provide strong cover in his position. Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane has also been linked with a huge move to the Theatre of Dreams.

Jude Bellingham Failure Last Summer

Manchester United were evidently looking to add Jude Bellingham to their midfield last summer but lost out to Borussia Dortmund.

Eduardo Camavinga is of a similar age group and could represent Manchester United’s alternative option.

Camavinga would arrive with a wealth of experience for his age having made 82 appearances for Rennes in France.

The central midfielder has been capped by France on three occasions already, scoring on his second appearance v Ukraine in October 2020.

He was given his debut in September of the same year, by Didier Deschamps, at the age of 17 years and nine months.

What Does Eduardo Camavinga Want?

According to Mohamed Bouhafsi, Eduardo Camavinga himself wants to stay in France, with Paris Saint-Germain the priority. Playing alongside the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar week in, week out is no doubt an attractive proposition to the Frenchman.

Camavinga is likely to be available for transfer this summer with his contract expiring in 2022.

Should he not leave, he is free to talk to clubs and sign a pre-contract in January 2022, ahead of the summer.

Rennes, like any club in the situation, would understandably want to receive a transfer fee.
